Jet grouting is a construction process that uses high-pressure air and grout to create a deep soil-concrete block. The purpose of jet grouting is to reinforce and strengthen the soil with concrete to support tunneling. Each operation will take approximately 8 to 12 weeks. The jet grouting ocation on Wilshire Blvd. between Highland Ave. and Longwood Ave. will be removed during the weekend of August 12-13.
